Updating column/table description

Hi there!

We have been using table/columns descriptions a lot lately and we are trying to refresh some of them with better explanations. They have been updated in our database, but we haven't been able to make Metabase re-scan them - so the tables are keeping their old descriptions. Is there any way to force it to re-sync it?
